Question of the day

Everyday somebody (doesn't matter who) askes a question and everyone answers (doesn't have to be cooking related).

I'll start...
What made you smile today?

Easy answer for me. I received an early birthday card from one of my favorite aunts. In it she included a black-and-white picture of me. It was taken when I was about 3-years-old in my family's home in Omaha, Nebraska. I was sitting in my little maple rocking chair, wearing a plaid dress with a Peter Pan collar, brown Mary Jane shoes, and anklets. I was holding my orange Persian kitty, Mitzi, on my lap.

Believe it or not, I remember the dress, shoes and rocking chair. The picture was taken over 50 years ago. I love it.

Being greeted by Julie, my shop cat as I walked across the alley to open the back door of the shop. Julie is psychic and knows when I'm coming. All i have to do is approach the building and Julie will jump up onto the little ledge I built for him at the bottom of the window in the door.

In case you're wondering, Julie is really Julius. Katie and I were a wee bit naive about determining the gender of a kitten.

A few things did it for me. One was the gorgeous weather. Another was wrapping up a research paper and taking my last final of the semester! And lastly, talking to my boyfriend. He always puts me in a better mood when I'm stressed.

CherryRed & SurvivorGirl: You made me smile! I had almost forgot to turn on the TV for the local news. My son is participating in an obstacle driving course with some other teens at our high school. They will get a cool T-shirt as well!!!

I get a smile every morning when my little ones give me hugs and kisses when they get up.

Laughing at my friend...she was driving and on the phone (I know..bad bad bad). All of a sudden she shouted "WHAT THE !@$@, there is a turkey in the road!"

I asked her if it was a wild turkey and she came back with "Well how the heck do I know if it's tame or not???"
